This morning on Tuesday’s edition of the ABC gabfest The View, GH star Ryan Paevey (Nathan) joined the ladies of the panel as a special guest co-host.  Ryan joined Rosie Perez, Whoopi Goldberg, Nicolle Wallace, and another guest co-host Glee’s Naya Rivera for the hour.

In one segment, Whoopi discussed that over this past weekend, 50 Shades of Grey opened nationwide and garnered over 94 million dollars at the box-office.  She then launched into how guest co-host Ryan Paevey actually auditioned for the role of Christian Grey that ultimately went to actor Jamie Dornan.

In a fun moment, Ryan takes the ladies through his “50 Shades” audition process, and why he thinks he was not selected for the role!  Later, Naya Rivera chimes in that she took to Twitter to find about what people thought of Dornan in the lead role, and said that women were expecting someone taller and with more muscles, and more manly, hence Paevey!

Watch the segment after the jump!  How do you think Ryan fared on The View?  Do you think he would have made the perfect Christian Grey?  Comment below!

Didn’t watch the View or the clip. When is ABC going to realize the only way to get the soap fans back is by restoring AMC & OLTL? Bring back Love In The Afternoon!!! And ABC7NY stop interrupting GH for “Breaking News” especially when it involves 3 idiots!

Agree 100% with your part 2. You’d think that given the 500 hours of local news that they air each day, they’d save minor items for then and quit interrupting GH, one of the few programs that I enjoy and love to escape with. And it’s laughable how everything, such as a water main break or a road closure, is labeled “Breaking News”. But sorry Linda, ABC will never bring back AMC and OLTL. That ship has long sailed and they clearly have no regrets, now 4 years later. At this point in time, you and others truly need to… Read more »

I have not watched anything on the alphabet network since the last day OLTL aired. The only reason I looked at this post was to learn who Ryan Paevey is.

You are so right. The only way to resort their viewership is to bring back AMC and OLTL.

Christie, in a very eloquent way, spoke the truth. However, by protesting and not watching GH we run the risk of losing that as well.

Folks, AMC & OLTL are NEVER coming back to ABC. Please understand that. For starters, do you realize how much it would cost ABC to even buy back the rights to the shows from Prospect Park? Not to mention rebuild sets and rehire actors, writers, etc without any promise that the shows would draw enough viewership to be profitable again? Also, where exactly would ABC place them in their daily lineup now? It’s NOT happening. Quite frankly, it’s very sad and downright pathetic that there are some soap fans that STILL can’t move on from this already.

I do not watch ABC either. I would only watch if AMC came back. I just want ABC to go away forever. I support the soaps by watching Y&R. No I will not get over it.

I was a loyal AMC/OLTL fan. I grieved both shows, but especially OLTL. It was. Great show with a strong audience; there was no reason to cancel. That said, I do not boycott ABC. GH is strong show, and my watching helps it to stay relevant.

ABC will never bring back these shows, so it’s time to move forward. Support the shows we do have left on daytime, and watch Ryan Peavey on The View. It can only help!

Please people for your own sanity MOVE ON ALREADY. It’s been YEARS since your soaps went off. If a boyfriend left you and you were still waiting for him to come running back to you 2 YEARS LATER, you would have to admit that that was a psychological problem. If they cancelled Two Broke Girls, would you stop watching ALL of CBS?

Totally serious: you people have a big problem.

They invite the man onto the show, let him talk! They also did not let Naya Rivera speak either. Rude.

TOTALLY AGREE.

Within 15 seconds of watching this clip I was reminded how awful this show is.

(Barbara Walters will pay in the afterlife for this.)

They yenta it up on all these shows. It is annoying for any guest to say anything without someone cutting them off. Have ALL the women yack it up and give their VIEW and then when a guest comes on only have one or two women in the segment.

I have not read nor seen 50 Shades of Gray,, doing so might ruin my sex life and I’d start to shop at Madards….
nonetheless! I could see Ryan as Christian just because he is sexy hot!

ever notice- 50 shades of grey sounds like a home decorating book .. LOL !!

Seriously, though, I cannot understand what the big hype is all about. I get more thrills watching my soaps or watching my daughter take her first steps. Those who make such a ruckus, really need to get a life. JMO.

Jamie Dornan/Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson/ Anastasia Steele, neither are models and both are much like ordinary looking people..
Both of them being just nice looking was great casting because people could relate to Christian and Anastasia..
Ryan was way too gorgeous, his model sexy body was to hot to be Christian..
The casting of more-so regular people is what made the movie more excitingly believable..

Right on, Su. There is nothing remarkable about those actors/actresses. Dakota, unfortunately fell far, far from the apple tree which is her mother, the gorgeous Melanie.

Saw the show. They completely ignored him as they babbled, cackled and shrieked their way through hot topics. They then talked about fashion week and how skinny models are, completely oblivious to the fact Ryan is a model…not even bringing him into that conversation. Whoopie then went on to describe wrongly how Ryan as Det West caught the bomb on the Haunted Star….and then interrupted his answer regarding his fifty shades audition…sigh….with it all the words he did manage to get in were articulate and intelligent. He came off charming, adorable and non pretentious…love!

Rebecca…YEAH, REALLY!!!!! A-L-L 3 of them (ESPECIALLY Whoopi!!!!!) are nothing but annoying, yammering and even more clueless AIRHEADS!!!!! As far as I’m concerned, Ryan brought some MUCH-NEEDED C-L-A-S-S to The View!!!!!! RYAN ROCKS!!!!!!

Take care, Rebecca. Peace.

Not even a GH star can make me turn on The View anymore. The View has run it’s course and needs to be put out of its misery ASAP already, imo. It’s amazing to think that right now, GH seems relatively safe for the forseeable future while The View is on the chopping block. Who would have thought that 3-4 years ago?

I hate labeling myself as a turncoat, but I’m a turncoat. It took many opinions from many different posters to open my eyes. I loved THE VIEW as it was….as my Gran saw it back in the day…and myself. The panel is not stupid…just obnoxiously oh- listen-to-me-listen-to-me….what-I-have-to-say-is-so-much-more-important!! I am sort of changing my tune….which is so unlike me. I usually am steadfast and stick to my guns. But, I must agree with all you, my soap friends, …..I was completely disappointed. I just watched the segment—-FASHION WEEK was absolutely astounding, by the by—- I felt so badly for Ryan….it was… Read more »

“The panel is not stupid…just obnoxiously oh- listen-to-me-listen-to-me….what-I-have-to-say-is-so-much-more-important!!” Unfortunately, CeeCee THE ABOVE is what the world is coming to. Just think about all those cell phone commercials that air during primetime. The actors are all portrayed as egocentric. I nearly lost my breakfast recently when I saw a commercial for Eggo waffles where the idiot family was bragging about WHO would post a picture of their nobody-gives-a-rat’s-ass waffle on Twitter or Instagram. Really? Is this what has become of us? The media and advertising take absolutely ZERO responsibility for the way they push this me-me-me crap at the general public.… Read more »

Does the fact that he went on an audition give him credibility as an actor? I think a more interesting aspect of that story would be to find out what the casting director thought. I’m pretty sure I know the answer.

Not a fan of Nathan West but I give the guy credit for admitting he auditioned for 50.

Yeah, Jake. That’s probably the reason he didn’t get the role; his beauty would have sent all the women and men into lovesick hysteria. LOL.

He did a great job and I think a huge star in the making. The camera loved him yesterday.

For those not watching ABC because of AMC and OLTL, that is your choice. But, you are damaging GH with that mentality. The actors from both shows have moved on. The networks are not going to pull a show from the archives when they can spend a fraction on a talk show, game show, local news, etc.

A completely pointless appearance, but he did look cute. He also did slightly better than Jason Thompson’s appearance last year.

Emme Rylan Addresses Reports Of Her Exit From General Hospital & Update On Plans With Family

Several hours ago, Emme Rylan (Lulu) of General Hospital took to her Instagram story to talk directly to her followers, friends and fans about her rumored exit on the ABC daytime drama series, and to share some changes in where she and her family will be living.

At that time, Emme updated everyone that since the landlord sold the house she has been living in with partner Don Money and their three children, that they had not found a suitable home for them to live, in Los Angeles, after their extensive search.  So for now they were going to put their things in storage and go on an extended road trip with the entire family in tow … in a car… under Covid-19 safety protocols with her kids still distance-learning, and that she would be documenting the trip on her Instagram account,

After she shared her original update, she later went back to her Instagram story to clarify her earlier statements after many fans were following up with her asking her even more questions.

 

Rylan shared:  “I am getting a lot of questions that I cannot answer …  people are kind of being confused that maybe I chose to take a vacation or take time-off,  so the only thing I can say is “no, I did not choose this.”  I can’t say anything else.  There you go.   That’s all I am allowed to say.   So, this trip is us taking an unexpected turn of events and turning it into something positive and fun for our family. ”

Earlier on her IG story, Emme addressed the reports of her exit from Port Charles explaining: “I am not in a position to be able to comment on the work stuff, so in terms of General Hospital, I am going to keep that topic quiet. All you need to know is that I love everyone there, we all love each other, I’m okay, and all of your messages of love are amazing … I love you guys so much — but I just can’t talk about it. ”

Then as to her plans with her family she shared: “We, meaning my family and I, have decided to do something completely insane. I have never done anything like this in my entire adult life. We are currently packing up our entire house and putting it in a pod and putting it in storage here in Los Angeles, and with only our suitcases, we are going to go on a Covid-safe, epic road trip.  I have been working every single day, Monday through Friday on a soap opera since 2004?  I have only been in New York and L.A, and I have never really explored life outside of this bubble.”

So, what do you think about what Emme shared with her fans and followers? Comment below.

General Hospital’s Halloween Week Promo Touts Wicked Surprises

Looks like everyone will be on edge this week as Halloween comes to Port Charles.  In the newly-released ABC promo for General Hospital, it reveals that this spooky week of episodes will be a rollercoaster ride, featuring wicked surprises, and killer costumes.

After Epiphany (Sonya Eddy) scolds Franco (Roger Howarth) for having his hand in the candy jar, Anna (Finola Hughes) or is it? … is donning a black witches hat. Jackie (Kim Delaney) is seen opening her door, juxtaposed with Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) saying “trick or treat”. But, is he actually at the door of someone else?

Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) asks Ava (Maura West), “Darling, what are you holding behind your back?” That is revealed to be a knife, but is it Ava who truly has the knife?

 

Meanwhile, Jason (Steve Burton) is looking around in the dark.  Elsewhere, Peter is jumpy.  So much so that Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) utters, “Looks like you’ve seen a ghost.”

Add all that to last Friday’s episode of GH where Carly(Laura Wright) thinks she saw Nelle’s (Chloe Lanier) hand come out of her grave and attack her! Is Nelle (Chloe Lanier) going to be proven to be alive? And if so, will she pop up on Halloween and scare the hell out of Carly?

Watch the promo below, then let us know what you think will happen this week on General Hospital via the comment section.
